Incoming traffic to Volos‘ Nea Aghialos Airport is set to rise by 25-30 percent this year in great part driven by new flights from the UK and Israel, according to airport authorities. 


The central Greece airport welcomed the debut in June of easyjet flights from Gatwick Airport which transported 354 passengers on its first two arrivals, with 220 departing for London on the same day and a third flight handling 173 arrivals and 131 departures.


Volos airport officials are optimistic, as flights from London to the port city are carried out on Airbus320 aircraft every Wednesday and Saturday, and in view of easyJet’s plans to increase London-Volos flights and include a Manchester-Volos itinerary next year.

According to airport chief Kostas Efstathiou, Volos and Central Greece residents are also very much interested in UK destinations, which explains the fully-booked flights. In this respect, the Athens News Agency reports that traffic at Volos Airport is set for a 25-30 recent rise.


Expected to contribute to the increase is the launch on July 16, of Cyprus-based TUS Airways‘ direct flight from Tel Aviv (Ben Gurion Airport) to Volos twice a week, on Mondays and Fridays. The route will run through to mid-October.



Also serving Volos are TUI with direct flights to Brussels twice a week, Transavia with routes to Amsterdam and France, Austrian Airlines with itineraries to Vienna, Condor to Munich, and Enter Air to London.

  The Guardian: “Fakistra” is among the best beaches in the world



the guardian 414617385




The National British daily newspaper “The Guardian”, in one of its recent publications, presents the 50 Best Beaches in the world divided in the following categories: the most impressive beaches, the best beaches in Europe destined for families, the most beautiful beaches in Britain, the most appropriate beaches for backpackers, the remotest and the wildest ones, the best for sports, the closest beaches to big cities.




The Fakistra beach in Pelion comes 7th in the list of the 50 Best Beaches in the world and more specifically belongs to the category of the most impressive beaches in the world. As stated, this very beach is more of a cove than a beach, backed by cliffs and dense woods, with white sands and pebbles and clear blue waters. Fakistra is located on the Pelion peninsula (mainland Greece), below Tsagarada village. It is a steep walk down but it’s the sort of place that, apart from in July and August, you may well have to yourself.




The choice of “The Guardian” to include “Fakistra” in the list of the 50 Best Beaches in the world is certainly not accidental. This fabulous pebble Pelion beach with its turquoise waters, without beach umbrellas, chaises longues, showers, little souvenir shops, cars or noise is nestled in a tiny east Pelion bay near Tsagarada village surrounded by lush greenery. Fakistra, “unknown” to most people, treasures its secrets for those who love the simple, beautiful, unique things. Among these secrets is the cave of Panagia Megalomata, with stalactites hanging from its ceiling, located on the northern part of the beach. Close to this cave there is another one which is actually a small chapel and during the period of the Ottoman domination used to be a “secret school” (kryfo Scholio). The natural beauty of the area is enhanced both by the amazing waterfall lying behind the beach and the green trails leading to Ntamouchari and Agios Ioannis.




This summer discover the secrets of the Fakistra beach!!!
